UNL students will begin online voting Oct. 26 for a referendum that calls for the construction of a new East Campus rec center and expansion of rec facilities on City Campus.

Votes will be accepted from 8 a.m., Oct. 26 to 8 p.m., Oct. 27. Student voters must log into MyRed and click "online voting." The referendum is sponsored by the ASUN Wellness Ad Hoc Committee.

Along with a new East Campus recreation facility, the proposal calls for the expansion of cardio and strength training areas in the Campus Rec center, and a new outdoor adventure center, including an expanded rock climbing area. The overall goal of the proposal is to expand cardio workout equipment on both campuses, adding 100 new machines and additional strength training equipment.

If approved, construction of new facilities could begin as early as fall 2011.
